Given the rumors of a second SmackDown LIVE raid on Raw following the siege two weeks ago, it was no surprise that Team Blue once again crossed the battle lines. What was surprising was the way the blue brand intruders managed to change the complexion of Survivor Series' head-to-head competition for brand supremacy by allowing Cesaro & Sheamus to supplant Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins as Raw Tag Team Champions.
Looking to prove themselves as more worthy representatives of Raw at Survivor Series than Ambrose & Rollins, The Bar (who arrived to their match in a full Liverpool kit) had successfully petitioned Kurt Angle for one final championship match against The Shield’s resident titleholders. They made good on the opportunity, too, battling to a standstill until a surprise appearance from The New Day threw everything into chaos.
Big E’s roar of “AWWW MANCHESTER” brought the action to a halt and ya boys entered through the crowd in SmackDown blue a la The Shield to announce the arrival of “Under Siege Part II,” which brought out Angle and the entire Raw roster to chase them off. Despite the chaos, however, the match had never ended, and The Celtic Warrior blasted Rollins with a wicked Brogue Kick in the confusion. Sheamus made the cover, Cesaro held Ambrose down, and new champions were crowned as Angle and The Shield looked on in disbelief. With Roman Reigns slated to return next week, The Hounds of Justice will have plenty of business on their plate. And as for The Bar? Well, on Sunday, Nov. 19, they’ll report to The Uso Penitentiary.
